If there is clutter in your house, anxiety is sure to be present. If there is chaos in your professional work space, anxiety gnaws at you. If there is no organized flow of thoughts, manic anxiety feeds on you in so many ways. Whether it is your stuff or thoughts or moods or habits, if you are not organized, your life will become one boat-load of anxiety. So look no further. Just take a piece of paper or better open an excel sheet and draw up a things-to-do list.
With full trust, go on and write down your priorities for the day, the habits you wish to adopt, people you wish to avoid, the foods you need to give up, the languages you desire to learn, the castle of dreams that you so desperately wish to turn into a reality. Do this tirelessly every single day. Not only will you find your stress is minimized, a better sense of control and visible direction will come into your life.
Now, go on completing tasks from your list before taking up newer ones. Strike off the tasks completed, micro-goals achieved before even thinking about the remaining ones. A trick here is to stop welcoming any other thought till you finish your tasks in line with your list. Have goals but have them in moderation in accordance with the resources/abilities you know you possess. Anxiety will be a thing of the past.
I know this sounds strange as a piece of advice. However, this is the real, true-tone secret of burying those anxiety attacks. Do not make your hurts immortal. They never make good bedfellows. Make companions with serenity, calm, joy, compassion and egolessness, to whatever extent possible. Medical research tells us that feelings of anger, vengeance and negativity burden our body-mind and kick-off anxiety. A saying goes, “A calm heart is the life of the organism.”
Go and save your breaths from the embers of hurt, fear, bitterness and all negation. We are after all the number of breaths we take! And nobody can take infinite breaths and so we have this event called Death. Death is nothing but a breath count that is exhausted. Remember this and go on forgiving people, denying any space to negative feelings in your body-mind. It will be difficult, for sure, but you’d surely experience a miracle touching your lives. A new-you will be there floating in waves of peace, quietude, health and joy. Far too many people will be looking up to you for being successful and in control of their lives. Your own success will only be a by-product—so effortlessly found!
